City for Champions

City For Champions


Coming soon!  Four unique, extraordinary and transformational tourist projects.

In December 2013, the City of Colorado Springs was awarded an estimated $120.5 million in state sales tax increment by the Colorado State Economic Development Commission.  This unprecedented award was the result of the appropriately named City for Champions application under the Regional Tourism Act, which highlights four new game-changing tourist venues in Colorado Springs.

An iconic destination museum dedicated to highlighting the values, historic moments, and collective memories of the Olympic and Paralympic movement.
